Cover your teeth to keep them sharp
After investing money in quality handsaws, the last thing you want to do is damage their teeth. For inexpensive protection, I bought a piece of vinyl siding undersill trim at the home center. After cutting it to the exact length of my handsaw's blade, I removed the nailing strip by scoring it with a utility knife and giving it a few bends. The result: a snug-fitting and affordable blade protector.
